About Me December 12, 2011
Hi! I’m Arden Elizabeth. This is a little about me…
I write because I have to write. There are stories in me that I must release or I might explode from the pressure of housing them. I look at life much differently than most people. I feel a need to share my stories with other people. Maybe someone will learn from my life; maybe they won’t. But, I share nonetheless.
I over think almost everything. I analyzed The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne my junior year in high school and got every inch of symbolism correct in my analyzation. I’m pretty sure I haven’t stopped looking for symbolism and discerning its meaning since that moment. It’s a bad habit that drives most people crazy. I’m trying to tame it.
I’m athletic and graceful, yet a complete and total klutz. I can master almost any sport or dance routine you put before me and trip over a brick on an otherwise flat sidewalk.
I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am a Tar Heel born, Tar Heel bred, and when I die I’ll be a Tar Heel dead. I’m tremendously proud of my time at this University and you’ll never catch me ever wearing anything Duke or N.C. State related.
I’m a daughter, friend, sister, reader, animal lover, cheerleader, and workout junkie. I love Mexican food and Cheese Its. I hate celery. I’m honest to a fault but can rarely spot a liar. I give my best to those I love and tend to see the best in others. I love being with people as much as I love being alone. I read Chick Lit and Fantasy Fiction. I talk too much but actually listen pretty well too. I’m a conundrum and an onion. I’m hard to get to know but, if you make the effort, I’m a gal worth knowing. If you’re my friend I will love you for life.
And, more than anything else, I’m a Jesus follower. I’m no particular denomination because I think the politics in each can be silly and ungodly. I hope you’ll see my heart for the Lord in this space. I’ll try to be real and raw while also being encouraging and hopeful. I believe Jesus died for my sins and on the third day rose from the dead so that I may live in eternity with Him (John 3:16). And, on the day I meet Him face-to-face, I hope He says, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:23) And then I hope He hands me my own personal lion. I can’t wait to ride a lion!
